Sleepless in Montreal

I'm 99% sure that we're done having kids. Yes, I would love to have a girl...I am too much of a girly-girl to NOT be drawn to pink tutus and doing pigtails. BUT...I HATE sleepless nights. Devin nurses every 1 1/2 to 2 hours ALL. NIGHT. LONG. He sleeps longer stretches during the day (Murphy's Law right?) - sometimes over 3 hours. However it seems he's a night owl like his older brother (who's bedtime lately is averaging 10:30pm) and his father (who's bedtime is always hours later than mine).

This is my only real complaint about babies. If someone invented a safe "baby-sleeping-serum", I would totally endure being pregnant again, endure an all-natural labour again, endure being spit up on, endure changing a million dirty diapers...even endure the screaming crying. BUT I WANT TO SLEEP 4 CONSECUTIVE HOURS, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!?

P.S. As I type this, Devin is fast asleep in his carseat...and looks like an angel.

living up to his name...

Devin's middle name is Issac. We chose it for it's meaning: "he who laughs".

I hope this is the beginning of a lifetime of fervent smiles and laughter.

Devin - 6 weeks

Right now his eyes are the most incredible shade of blue-grey. I know basic biology says that brown eyes are dominant and his eyes will inevitably change to become "browner", but right now they are such an interesting, unique color.

Don't let him fool you...

He looks pretty peaceful here...

but his cries are anything but.

Seriously...I've never heard a baby cry as loudly and as ferociously as my little Devin. Sometimes it's so obnoxious it's funny. Sometimes (mostly when it's between the hours of 1am to 5am) it's not that funny.

One of the few moments where Hudson actually acknowledges his little brother. He brought Devin some stuffed animals, took some of his own pictures of him...then punched him in the face. We're 99% sure it was an accident.
